Zac Taylor Bengals new system

Bengal Players Excited About New System

It’s rough for any franchise when the fans aren’t having fun. It’s even tougher when the players are not having any fun. After three straight losing seasons, it’s not too difficult to see the Cincinnati Bengal players haven’t been having much fun as of late. That may change now that Zac Taylor is the head coach. Here is what a few of the star Bengal Players said about Zac Taylor and what he is trying to bring to Cincinnati.

Bengals star wideout A.J. Green had this to say, “I’m very excited. We’ve got a new spark, made some changes. It’s going to be fun.”

Andy Dalton said, “…with Zac, obviously he’s younger, and you can feel the energy level in the building. It’s been a lot of fun, from meetings to the practice field, to everything.”

Joe Mixon said, “Everyone is having fun. There’s a new energy. I think it’s going to be good for us.”

Former first-round pick John Ross said, “I think that’s the message from everyone on the team, the coaches, the training staff, just be you, run fast and have fun.” Things haven’t been much fun for John Ross under former head coach Marvin Lewis. After suffering from some injuries during his rookie season, Lewis never seemed to turn Ross loose and be the player he was at the University of Washington.

What’s important is the players are starting to believe in Taylor and the new offense he is trying to bring to Cincinnati. Taylor was apart of the Sean McVay system that turned the Rams offense around following the Jeff Fisher debacle that led many to believe whether or not Jared Goff and Todd Gurley were long for the NFL.

Hopefully, Taylor not only brought with him a new system but also some experience from the Rams failure in last year’s Super Bowl. Whether it was his inability to make course corrections or he just believed his system was good enough, McVay failed to make any adjustments and it cost him and the Rams a Super Bowl.

Whatever new and exciting things Taylor is bringing to Cincinnati they will have to do it in 2019 without their first-round pick Jonah Williams who had shoulder surgery on a torn labrum. But the rest of the players are excited, and wins will once again get fans excited. The NFL is a what have you done for me lately league. Unless you’re a Cowboy’s fan then it’s a what you did for me 25 years ago league.

If it ain’t football news, is it worth reading?
